Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

You are solely focusing on your own poor use of the term "remarkable" in one post, which I wasn't solely addressing. You spent 5 comments making amends for the media's dirty hands in this So I'm making "amends" for the media when I take issue with someone's odd take that the med...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

The ones who focus on the rioters are every major news outlet right now Are you really surprised with the media being lazy and fear mongoring? That's like Foxworthy ending a show with redneck jokes, you should expect it I would rather focus on why those less privileged have a much higher mortality ...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I agree with all of your points. I'm not getting lost in the rioting, and many people who are engaged aren't either. But I'm seeing SO MANY posts/comments/responses that are focused on the wrong thing right now and it's frustrating Get off of FB and Twitter or any anger provoking platform. If I don...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

I understand the anger. I also understand that anything the peaceful protestors are trying to accomplish will be dismissed by those who choose only to see the people setting fires Understand the difference between someone rioting and someone protesting, it's only about 10-15% who are committing cri...

I think the recent events might hurt Val Demings chances for VP despite her saying, tweeting, and writing an Op-ed in the Wash Post with all the right things.

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Chauvin will be found guilty. It will be ugly and his attorneys will piss off a LOT of people, but there's no way he's not sentenced to prison. Agreed, this won't be what we saw 27 years ago as far as a not guilty verdict. However, I doubt much will pursued as far as the other officers who assisted...

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Not to be cynical but unless there are changes in police practices, civil and criminal accountibility (cops should be able to be sued as well as not have their cases be determined by a biased adjacent police and/or correctional district), as well as someone not as biased as a DA, we will not see any...

Too little, too late.

Took too damn long to arrest him. When the DA mentions this is by far the fastest a police officer has been arrested, the system is broken.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Overall, it was a decent but not great draft with nothing likely to change the path of the team. Smet, Gipson, and Vildor were reaches while Johnson and Mooney were good value picks. Who I would have selected at each spot: Delphit S LSU (43) Mims WR Baylor (50) Hall CB UVA (155) Weaver Edge Boise (1...
